Sunday 27th June : Buds & Buds Summer Event

Despite the football there was a grand turnout at the Summer Event to celebrate The Year of Biodiversity.

Everyone enjoyed the sweltering heat with lemonade and a vegetarian barbecue executed with the usual Lost Plot style - cooked in a reclaimed sink barbecue for that recycled authenticity! All those who glugged down lemonade used their cups to plant wild flowers for their own gardens to attract those all important bees and butterflies. Meanwhile the kids got to have there face painted with different insects in an array of colours and enjoyed the wildlife pond that's teaming with bugs now it's more established. There were plenty of water boatman, newts and a dragonfly even made a brief visit to check out all the fuss!

Tours of the allotment seemed to get some great feedback especially from those people who had attended the spring event and were now seeing all the volunteers hard work pay off.

It was an all round brilliant day, finished off with Sarah's amazing strawberry cream cake. Wow!
